Fund­ing on of­fer to help the com­mu­nity get more ac­tive

Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP -

A SO­CIAL en­ter­prise which aims to get peo­ple more ac­tive is of­fer­ing a cash boost to Mac­cles­field groups.

Ac­tive Cheshire is a strate­gic com­mis­sioner of sport and phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity in Cheshire and War­ring­ton, which means its job is to en­cour­age the com­mu­nity to be more ac­tive.

This can in­clude help­ing groups of peo­ple get in­volved with more or­gan­ised ac­tiv­i­ties, or fund­ing plans for non-tra­di­tional routes to a health­ier life­style.

As part of its lat­est scheme ‘Ac­tive Any­where,’ they have a pot of £200,000 to help peo­ple to im­prove their phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity habits and is open to sug­ges­tions on how the money can be spent.

Any­one can reg­is­ter , whether you are a group of young mums, lun­cheon club, a parish coun­cil, or even an ex­tra care fa­cil­ity with a new idea.

Anne Boyd, chief ex­ec­u­tive of Ac­tive Cheshire said: “(Last year) the qual­ity and breadth of ap­pli­ca­tions we re­ceived for the last in­vest­ment round was truly im­pres­sive, so I’m hop­ing that this year we will see new and in­no­va­tive projects that make a dif­fer­ence to peo­ple’s lives and de­liver the great­est sus­tain­able im­pact for the res­i­dents of Cheshire and War­ring­ton.”
